A hip, upmarket Italian serving authentic ‘red’ and ‘white’ pizzas.
A few restaurants along the Rue de Trévise have terraces, but Le Bookie’s is the buzzing standout, both cool and casual. If you can’t get a seat, inside is equally hip, with arty exposed brick décor and designer furniture.
The restaurant specialises in bianche (‘white’ pizzas without tomato sauce, supposedly the norm before Columbus brought the fruit back from South America). These include a four-cheese pizza, one with truffles and another with bresaola (around €14-€16). The standout among the ten more familiar rosse is the ‘Elégante’, which comes generously heaped with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, rocket, parmesan and aged Parma ham.
Daily pasta dishes and large salads also feature, as well as a gorgeously creamy burrata, which works as a starter or a side dish. Wash it all down with a Spritz (€8), a glass of Chianti (€4) or a refreshing bottle of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, a white wine from the Marche region (€24). Classic desserts like tiramisu, panna cotta and a ‘tart of the day’ round off a filling and authentic Italian meal.
